A UCSF employee is expected to appear in court today to answer to charges of pilfering thousands of dollars out of the university's funds for organ transplant patients, officials said.

District Attorney George Gascón said Dulce Tattiana Reyes worked as a campus finance manager, and was responsible for

all the money transactions within the university's Transplant Department. Reyes allegedly falsified 34 expense documents,

reimbursing herself for phone bills, travel costs, and dog

care services.

The final tally on all these "reimbursements:" over $17,000.

Gascón said his office will charge her with one felony count of grand theft and 16 felony counts of forgery.

"UCSF is a publicly funded hospital that benefits the well-being of San Franciscans." Gascón said in a statement. "Rest assured that we will hold accountable those individuals who try to cheat hardworking taxpayers."

We contacted the university to get a comment, but no word back yet.

Reyes has plead not guilty and currently has bail set at $100,000.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
